Stormy Weather

Today is our first big thunderstorm of spring. Most people hate the rain, but for me, there’s nothing better than curling up with a cup of tea and a book. Of course…right now I’m stuck with my back to the window in my gray cubicle. But I can see the flashes of lightening reflecting off my glasses.

Wow…that was a nerdy paragraph.

Anyway, I had a different poem planned for today, but instead I’m going to share one of my favorite songs with you guys. This has been in my head all morning. I love the Billie Holiday version, but many great singers have done their own renditions.

 

Stormy Weather

Don’t know why there’s no sun up in the sky

Stormy weather

Since my man and I ain’t together,

Keeps rainin’ all the time

 

Life is bare, gloom and mis’ry everywhere

Stormy weather

Just can’t get my poorself together,

I’m weary all the time

So weary all the time

When he went away, the blues walked in and met me.

If he stays away, old rockin’ chair will get me.

 

All I do is pray the Lord above will let me walk in the sun once more.

Can’t go on, ev’ry thing I had is gone

Stormy weather

Since my man and I ain’t together,

Keeps rainin’ all the time

 

–Harold Arlen & Ted Koehler

  1. my shoes and my feet were soaked just from the walk from car to office, and are still damp. that said, the rain doesn’t make me not want to come to work. the WORK makes me not want to come to work. and this song has always been a favorite of mine. good pick!
